Never thought I’d go for a Lullaby album. Especially one full of covers! I detest song covers that offer nothing new, especially in the realm of traditional music. If you’re planning to cover a song I implore, plead and beg of you to OWN IT. Make the tune your very own. Don’t tread the path of repeating a song that’s already been beaten to death. When I listen to the Edie Carey and Sarah Sample CD Till The Morning: Lullabies and Songs of Comfort. They take ownership of the material they are covering. There are 3 originals (14 songs), the rest are inspired and thought out covers. California Star is a Bob Dylan song, via Wilco, now via Sarah and Edie is ethereal. A great new version of an already great song. The other songs on this disc are expansive, fulfilling, relaxing and tranquil. It’s a very pretty album with strong vocals, original arrangements and lots of strings. If you’re looking to unwind for the day with the kids or alone this is a great choice. It goes perfect with a cup of tea (or something stronger) while sitting on the porch as the sun sets over the neighborhood. On June 24th the CD becomes available to the public.
